She's an 18 year-old Himalayan and surprisingly healthy for her age; heck, she's probably healthier than I am! 

My own health hasn't been that great lately and she really does seem to sense when I'm not doing well. What I find so comforting is that she seeks me out to sleep with me; she's so soft and warm and has finally figured out that I can't sleep when she plops herself on my feet so she's re-positioned herself next to my pillow so I can reach over pet her if I'm awake in the middle of the night.

I know dogs are famous for this kind of sensitivity. Do you think cats have it too? There's nothing sweeter than a soft little kitty tongue "kissing" me from time to time and I've even woken up because she's licking my face.

I sometimes wonder what will happen when she's not around any more but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. I've had a lot of cats but Missy is really special <3

@GoneButNotForgotten  Such a sweet post and a very sweet and special cat! ❤️Wishing you many more years together. 

I had a special cat, also, and still miss her. My husband and I often talk about her and all the funny and sweet things she did. 💕

That's very sweet.  Our pets are so sweet & yes they can sense when somethings amiss.

 

I have 2 19 yr. old sisters and one of them, Fluffy, will kiss also.  She woke me up last week licking my face.  Cutest!  When I pet her, she'll sometimes grab my hand with her front paws & start licking my hand.  Maybe she thinks I'm a good Mommy, who knows?

 

I hope you have many more years of love & enjoyment with your Sweet Missy.  They are our children.

Doggies know completely.  Snuggles and licks.  Like they are checking on us.  Kisses to your baby.

You are so fortunate to have that special bond with Missy ... my Himalayan actually bit me on her 16th birthday as I tried to cuddle with her to "celebrate" her special day.  

 

Cherish your time with her, and you two will be connected forever!  Hope you feel better soon.
